Description

The associated production of jets and vector bosons allows for stringent tests of perturbative QCD calculations and is sensitive to the possible presence of new physics beyond the Standard Model. Measurements of jet production rates in association with W, Z or photons, in proton-proton collisions at 7 TeV and 8 TeV center-of-mass energy are presented, using data collected with the CMS detector. Measurements include inclusive jet multiplicity and differential jet cross sections.
